Now that winter's gone, you might feel like it's OK to start slacking on your skincare regimen. That, however, could not be further from the truth. Your skin still needs an extra boost of moisture to stay healthy, especially after you cleanse it. In fact, now that warmer weather's finally here, you should consider refocusing your skin care efforts to make sure you're still using beauty products that are perfect for the current season.
In the winter, you might be clamoring for more ways to keep your skin hydrated. With naturally dry skin, you're fighting against the elements and your own tendency toward a rough complexion. As the days heat up, though, you can typically relax your hydrating efforts some and begin focusing on other skin concerns. If you were wearing a thick, hydrating formula at night, for instance, try swapping it out with Bliss The Youth As We Know It Anti-Aging Night Cream to target fine lines and wrinkles instead.
You might feel like spring and summer are your number one enemies, but it doesn't have to be that way. In order to enjoy your time in the sun this season, try using an oil-free moisturizer to prevent building onto your already naturally oily complexion. You might also try using Freshskin by Elemis Skin Clear Mattifying Moisturiser on top of your favorite beauty products. With this miracle in a bottle, you'll go through the day with a tamed, oil-free complexion without having to make too many changes to your skin care routine.
If you have a blend of naturally oily and dry skin, your routine might not change very much. Although the warmer, humid air might cause you to lean toward a more glistening complexion, you aren't going to really see much of a difference. That doesn't mean you shouldn't update your skin care routine regularly, however. Try adding FreshSkin by Elemis Super Boost Moisturising Serum to your regimen to help give you a burst of moisture at night. Just apply it after you've washed your face and right before you put on your moisturizer.
Are you not sure what skin you have? Pay attention to how it feels when you first wake up as opposed to when you go to sleep at night. No matter what products you're wearing, you'll likely notice a pattern. If it stays oily throughout, you probably have a naturally oily complexion, and so on.
